    Default {WIP} Arden Worldmap 2014

    Yes I know. Every year again, a new take on the Arden Map, but this time I feel motivated to finish it.

    Don't worry, I'm sure most of us go back and re-create maps of the worlds we're fond of, myself included!

    To match my sketch better, I am drawing the entire coast by hand, nö strokelayer here.
    Next is the Eastern continent of Etlessar and Icathan, which are depicted on the original Arden Map

    Looks really cool, as far as I can tell. Going back and recreating a previously made map is always fun. I find myself adding things that I never would have thought of the first time around.

    The Continent of Etlas was invented when I was around 6 years old, the greater Arden campaign envirement, was originally a postit strip with a River from north to south throught a dessertworld inspired by Mad Max Film branch and the Film Legend and Bladrunner, which I created for AD&D when I was around 8. It got expanded due my regular RPG gaming starting age 9. And well it grows till today. But you could clearly seen on the old map that it suffered the "Everything resembles Europe" Syndrome. So I am revising it with its own more unique shapes and structure.

    This!

    Looking forward to it. Can you mark the part that you showed us in your very first Arden map? Or do you redo that part as well?
